About Paunch

A 10-15min drive from town is the quality reefbreak of Paunch. The lefts start with a tubular section, before wrapping into a more workable wall. A fun wave when small, it gets real sucky with a bigger swell. There is also the option of a few rights off the peak when everybody focuses on the lefts but they are a shadow of the lefts. Sharp reef at Paunch and Dumpers make reef boots a necessity.
